About this session
Solvent products are used in almost all manufacturing processes, in a wide variety of applications.
Many of the products which use solvents in their formulations, or within their manufacturing processes are vital to everyday modern living. These include pharmaceuticals (including vaccines and antibiotics) and electronics such as smart phones, medical devices, solar panels and computers.
As we venture into a digital, more sustainable future, solvents will be essential in delivering the new technologies required. The Solvents Industry Association and their members will present on the challenges ahead and how the industry is adapting for a greener future.
